Salta il vertice Europa-Canada e la Campagna stop TTIP Italia pubblica il nuovo rapporto “Butta quella pasta“: perché il CETA va fermato anche se il Belgio ci ripensa. Per questo Stop TTIP Italia conferma le iniziative del 5 novembre: “non illudiamoci e non abbassiamo la guardia”
“Il Belgio non è nella posizione di firmare il CETA”. Con queste lapidarie parole il primo ministro belga Charles Michel chiude la partita sull’Accordo di liberalizzazione commerciale con il Canada. “La Vallonia, il Governo di Bruxelles capitale e la comunità francese hanno detto No”.
Dopo l’afflosciamento del negoziato sul TTIP, la Commissione Europea ha provato a forzare sull’approvazione del CETA tentando di trasformare un accordo evidentemente misto, che richiede la ratifica dei Parlamenti nazionali, in uno EU only e a modificare alcuni dei capitoli più problematici, come l’arbitrato sugli investimenti, con uno specchietto per le allodole come l’imitazione di una vera corte…

Turkey’s Anadolu News Agency, though government-run, is providing remarkably clear and reliable diagrammatic descriptions of the current status of the U.S – and allies versus Russia – and – Syria – and IRAN in the current oil-and-gas war in the Middle East, for control over territory in Syria, for construction of oil-and-gas pipelines through Syria supplying fuel into the world’s largest energy-market: Europe. Russia is now the dominant supplier of both oil and gas, but its ally Iran is a Shiite gas-powerhouse that wants to share the market there, and Russia has no objection.
Qatar is a gas-powerhouse and wants to become the main supplier of gas there, and Saudi Arabia is an oil-powerhouse, which wants to become the major supplier of oil, but Saudi oil and Qatari gas would be pipelined through secular-controlled (Assad’s) Syria, and this is why the U.S…

More than 80 people were arrested in North Dakota on Saturday, as police armed with pepper spray descended on a protest near the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) construction site.
The 83 water protectors were hit with charges ranging from rioting to criminal trespass, according to the Morton County sheriff’s department. The Bismarck Tribune reported:
Kellie Berns, a protester who hung back behind a fence at the scene, said she received reports of people being pepper-sprayed and thrown to the ground and described law enforcement as being more aggressive than in past incidents. She said protesters were encircled by police as they walked onto the site.
“People came back very distressed,” she said of those who returned to the fence following the demonstration. “The pipeline is getting a lot closer, so the stakes are getting higher.”
Protests against DAPL have been ongoing for months, as the Standing Rock Sioux, along with other tribes and environmental activists, say the $3.8 billion, 1,100-mile pipeline threatens their access to clean water and violates Native American treaty rights.
Last week, riot charges against Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman were dismissed after she turned herself in to North Dakota police. An arrest warrant was issued after Goodman’s crew videotaped a private security team hired by the pipeline company assaulting peaceful protesters with attack dogs and pepper spray. Meanwhile, documentary filmmaker Deia Schlosberg faces up to 45 years in prison for reporting on the protests.
“This string of arrests constitutes nothing less than a war on journalism and a victory for fossil fuel interests that have banked on the pipeline,” Food and Water Watch executive director Wenonah Hauter said last week.
Saturday’s arrests follow reports of escalating police abuse at the protest sites, including beatings and unnecessary strip-searches of those arrested.
On Twitter, Ojibwe activist and attorney Tara Houska wrote:
Journalists, attorneys, indigenous protectors arrested & maced while demonstrating today. Whose interest is North Dakota protecting?
Construction on the pipeline is continuing despite a request from the federal government to put a halt on activity so that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers can properly consider objections.
